Also Are these wheels so fast because of the tire or because they take 698 micro bearings?
Here's some with ceramic balls - ABEC 7 rating but fairly expensive at $24.95 each (or close to $400 for a full set)
Or would you prefer full ceramic? (I hope you're ready for the price though... $69 per bearing or a shade over $1,100 a set if I got the math right).

That was just a cursory googling though, may find better prices elsewhere (doubt you'll find them made by any of the skate bearing makers though, they tend to stick to the bigger sizes).
